Oleiros is a small town ( Vila ) and a district ( Concelho ) in Portugal with 2300 inhabitants (as of June 30, 2011).


The current place of Oleiros was first mentioned in a document about a donation of territory by King Sancho I to the Hospitaller Order in 1194 . The place received its first city rights in 1232 , which King Manuel I renewed in 1513 and made Oleiros an independent circle outside of any ecclesiastical order.

In the course of the administrative reforms after the Liberal Revolution in Portugal , the circle of Oleiros was significantly expanded in 1834 . After its brief dissolution, the independent circle of Oleiros has existed again since 1869 .
